Name _______________________ Page 1 F.07.210E2 I. (27 points) Malayamycin A, a compound with antifungal and antibacterial activity, was isolated from a soil organism ( JOC 2007 72, 6353). O N H H H H 3 CO H N H N N O NH 2 H O H 2 N HO H 12 A. During the synthesis of Malayamycin A, the following substitution reaction was carried out in two stages. Complete the reaction as required. O O O O H O Na H Na H + H 2 CH 3 Br B. A certain reaction ( H -> K ) proceeds through intermediate I . Here are some data about the reaction: G° from H to K = -2 kcal/mol G° from I to K = -10 kcal/mol G (activation energy) from K to I = 12 kcal/mol G ˇ (activation energy) from H to I = 16 kcal/mol 2 kcal/mol E progress of reaction Circle all of the tetrahedral stereocenters and clearly assign the stereochemical configuration ( R or S ). (a) (b) (a) Draw an Energy diagram that is consistent with these data. Label I and K , and show the appropriate energy curves. (b) What is the rate determining step for the reverse reaction?
